We enjoyed the boat for weekending and vacations. For it's size it has a roomy interior.

If you enjoy projects, have time for them and are interested in sailing and/or living on a boat for vacations and weekends - you could put a few thousand into it that you would never recover and simply write off the cost as entertainment expense.

Then, give the boat away when you are no longer using it. Or, you could try to give it away now, but depending on the condition, there might not be any takers!
